Gengahr share 'Before Sunrise' video
Gengahr have unveiled their new video for 'Before Sunrise', the lead single from their highly anticipated new album, Where Wildness Grows, released 9th March 2018 on Transgressive Records.
The video was shot by Jamie Whitby and features teenage moped gang, The Anfa Riders who've found their own take on the #bikelife movement with the help of a national glut of cheap import mopeds.
Referring to themselves as ’stunters’, they gather in huge groups on the outskirts of the city and away from the authorities who confiscate their bikes on sight. This video is a snapshot of their universe, a celebration of the sense of freedom and weightlessness that we seem to lose as we get older, found in a corner of the world where you might not think to look.
Discussing the video, the director offered:
“This one's super special for me - the culmination of multiple trips to Morocco and months of WhatsApp chats in very dodgy French trying to convince the Anfa Riders to let this weird guy from London come and shoot with them. Huge thanks to the the guys for having us and a big shout out to our local fixer Karim El-Amri and my amazing tiny crew - Sorcha, Jack, and Ruben - who somehow made it all happen in one of the maddest cities in the world.”
To coincide with the release of the video, the band also announced the second edition of their Gengahr Gallery, following the success of the first event back in 2015. The exhibition will feature original artwork from the band’s Hugh Schulte - alongside pieces from members of Slaves, Alt-J, Toothless, Puppy - and runs from 14th - 20th March at A-Side B-Side, Hackney.
